Captain Tom & First Mate

On a personal note... Captain Tom & his First Mate, Ruth Katherine, met in 2000 in a Yahoo Internet chat room. Ruth was employed as a Nurses Aid (STNA) and Captain Tom was in a Business Management career.

In 2003 they were married at St. Thomas More Roman Catholic Church in Brooklyn Ohio. After marriage, Captain Tom entered technical training of A+ certification for computer repair, while Ruth continued her career as a STNA at various nursing homes for disabled persons in northeast Ohio.

Captain Tom completed his A+ Certification in late 2003 and leaped into a private business as an entrepreneur. The computer repair and refurbishing business became so successful that Ruth changed her STNA career and joined Captain Tom full time. Refurbishing & repairing computers, selling them at affordable prices to lower income families was both lucrative and personally rewarding.

The best day of Captain Tom's life

In June 2016 Captain Tom & Ruth spent 7 days riding the Blue Ridge Parkway. Each of those 7 days were the BEST day of Captain Tom's life, spent with his wife, Ruth Katherine.

Captain Tom & Ruth are Harley riders.
